Merry Christmas and goodwill to all.
As the year ends, there is much cause for anxiety, a global economic recession causing jobs losses everywhere, in Michigan and Luanshya. Yet we can, still be hopeful .
As the new year dawns, there will be new opportunities, the sun will rise still and we will surmon again that universal courage to overcome, the small and great challenges that confront our daily existence.
Have a blessed and happier year in 2009.
